Smell is bad enough kids won't play outdoors

Re: "Stench stirs alliances in Latino area," July 27: The smell is disgusting, and even if you live on Browns Bridge Road, you have no idea what it smells like on Catalina Drive.

Gainesville doesn’t need another tax for stormwater fixes

RE: "Gainesville stormwater upgrades a tough sell to public," July 22: Thank you, Frank Norton Jr., you hit the nail right on the head. Of course this should have been taken care of through the years. But not enough money available, right? Of course not, we have monies galore, for one to build a bridge to nowhere!

Grateful for columnist listing president’s success for a change

Regarding article written July 21, "Obama will shine in history's eyes:" Thanks to Dick Meyer, Chief Washington Correspondent for Scripps Washington Bureau and Decode D.C. for his very candid article. I so admire his integrity. It is so very refreshing to finally read someone stating facts regarding our president, Barack Obama.

There’s more to life than arguing about politics; embrace family

Let's not put all our interest in politics; it's going to be what it's going to be. Don't you think your family is more important than politics? Mine certainly is.

Columnist’s attack against Trump was out of line, offensive

We don't appreciate columnists calling Donald Trump a "dork and a buffoon." He has brought to light issues that need to be addressed. His comments were not outrageous; he was merely telling the truth and no one can disagree with that.

Smell in air has plagued city for years with no solution in sight

I read the article about the stench in the Atlanta Highway/Browns Bridge area with interest and raised eyebrows. Kelly Randall said he was only made aware of it three weeks ago. I have lived off Browns Bridge Road nearly 14 years and this odor has been around for most of those years. Where's everybody been?

Leftist agenda puts American dream, US Constitution in peril

The American dream has passed. In its place, soft tyranny. Around the bend, the unknown, possibly third world status. The remainder of this administration's reign portends the fatal piercing of the hearts of the pioneers and patriots who discovered, explored, settled and built the freest and most prosperous Republic in the history of mankind.

Why can’t we disagree and still respect others’ views?

I have to admit, I'm bemused by the slogan that the homosexual lobby has adopted for its recent court victory, "Love wins." I'm confused because the most vocal proponents of same-sex marriage seem to be extremely un-loving as I understand love: "Love is patient, love is kind ... it keeps no record of wrongs ... Love bears all things, endures all things."

Removing Confederate flag an insult to Southern history

In response to the current controversy concerning the Confederate battle flag, I affirm that it is an insult to the memory of our ancestors and an affront to my culture and to Southern history, that this precious emblem be removed from public life. As a descendant of men who fought under that banner, I take it as an indictment of who I am that the flag should now be considered racist and indecent.

Let God be judge of morality, leave it out of our laws

I write in response to the letters of Paul Barnes and Duane Jones in your July 11 edition. They write of their opinion on the Supreme Court decision to do away with the law that made it illegal for gays and lesbians to wed.

Congress needs plan to rescue Social Security

Social Security and entitlement reform is an issue that will assure seniors that they will receive the benefits of hard work. Here in Northeast Georgia, we older Americans are watching closely what the U.S. Congress, especially U.S. Rep. Doug Collins and Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson do to preserve Social Security this session.

Nation founded on faith has lost its way, led astray by its leaders

I believe it's obvious to most intelligent and observant people that Christians and our faith are under heavy persecution, not only in America, but on a worldwide scale never seen before. America is faced with an almost overwhelming tsunami of woes that it seems hopeless to even hope that we can overcome and prevail as a nation.

There’s nothing ‘segregated’ about voting by district for city’s leaders

When I heard Debra Pilgrim, chairwoman of the Hall County Republican Party, say that the proposal to change the election of city council members from an at-large voting system to an in-district voting system would result in segregation, I was stunned. It has been quite a long time since that word has come up in a conversation. I question her reference to "segregation."

Socialists disguised as political leaders ban battle flag in South Carolina

OK, now the terribly offensive battle flag/Confederate flag (to those who are ignorant of the truth) has been outlawed in South Carolina by the politicians/socialists. And I might add a great performance was put on by Rep. Jenny Horne with crying and screaming.
